How will you get the heat into the kiln chamber? Hot water? If so I would say you can make a safe and accurate system. Just blowing in hot air would not be as consistent or produce as good of a finished product.

I build my kiln (Nyle) about 10 ft away from my Central Boiler OWB and heat it that way. It cost about $1000 extra on heat exchanger, insulated pipe, valves and extra pump but gets it up to 150 on a warm day pretty easy. Stan at Nyle walked me threw changing a couple wires on my unit. I try not to run threw the heat cycle to 150 on real cold days because I heat my house with it also and too lazy to go out early in the morning to add wood. I've not used the electric heat with it at all.

If you go dehumidification for your kiln you can use a wood-fired hot water boiler for heat but not forced air.
